  • Pepper Spray

    Pepper sprays represent one of the best non-lethal self-defense tools a person can carry. Many pepper spray products can be easily carried in a pocket, on a keychain, or in a purse, allowing one to reach them easily and deploy them as needed to protect themselves from attackers. High Tech Safety offers dozens of pepper spray models to choose from, in various colors and styles to suit your exact needs.

    What is Pepper Spray?

    Pepper spray, sometimes called “pepper gas”, OC spray, or OC gas, is made from a substance called oleoresin capsicum that is derived from grinding hot peppers and extracting the active ingredient capsaicin with chemicals. This hot pepper extract is combined with an emulsifying agent like propylene glycol and water, then pressurized to make it an aerosol defensive tool. Pepper sprays are used for self-defense, crowd control, and non-lethal law enforcement interventions. Some pepper spray products are mixed with a dye to mark the skin and clothing of an attacker, making it easier for police to identify assailants.

    How Does Pepper Spray Work?

    Pepper spray is considered an inflammatory agent. When sprayed in the face, an assailant will experience intense burning of the eyes, skin, and nose, resulting in temporary blindness, coughing, and difficulty in breathing. Disorientation can set in, rendering an assailant unable to continue his or her actions. These effects can be used in a self-defense scenario to give a person time to retreat to safety after deploying the spray against an attacker. The effects of the OC spray tend to last for about 30 to 40 minutes.
